Ashley | 5 comments Hi all, I'm looking for mysteries/thrillers featuring couples where one may be gaslighting (manipulating) the other or mystery/thrillers where one member of a couple is being controlled by the other.

Here are a few I've read recently that I've liked a lot to give you an idea of what I'm looking for:

Behind Closed Doors by B.A. Paris.
The Breakdown by B.A. Paris
A Stranger in the House by Shari Lapena
Into the Darkest Corner by Elizabeth Haynes

I think Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn would be in that category.

Very dark, very unhealthy relationship

Bk1 Black
Bk2 Red
Bk3 White

The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins

'Girl on the Train' definitely fits in this category with the ex husband (Tom) gaslighting former wife (Rachel) during and after their marriage.

The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins

You might want to include a SPOILER ALERT with this one.

The difficulty of this whole thread is that the gaslighting might not be revealed until the end of the stories.

Good point. I added a spoiler alert to the topic header/title.

Reminder: Spoilers are fine in the Comments, but give us a clear warning before revealing a spoiler (e.g., type SPOILER, leave some blank lines, then type the spoiler details). OR use the spoiler html tag to hide text - just note the mobile app will not display text hidden inside the spoiler tag. For example:

< spoiler>This spoiler is hidden because some members might want to read this book as well.< /spoiler> ...but don't type the spaces beside the brackets.

It looks like this: (view spoiler)
